71 280 se 3.5 cabriolet

hi guys, i'd like to get some info regarding my 3.5

i purchased this beauty about 2 years ago, i replace the top, new original color paint and some other minor things, the car is in great condition with very low mileage, but i don't have any service records or actual mileage that i can verified.
i did some research and i found out who was the original owner back in 1971 and the selling dealer number 51103.
i just want to know if there is a way that i can track down his history somehow, especially mileage, owners and service records, thank you for your help

Have you tried contacting the original owner (or their family)? Since you know who that was, start there.

you might try a DMV ownership search. I did one on mine but most of the prior owners could not be contacted.
